Kepa Arrizabalaga has been really poor in front of goal this season for Chelsea and chances are that the Spaniard might drop to the bench when the Blues take on Arsenal.
Chelsea play the Gunners in the FA Cup final and there’s a big chunk of people who think that Lampard will opt to use Willy Caballero as his No 1 at Wembley on Saturday.
When the Chelsea manager was asked this very same question, he refused to give a direct answer but at the same time, he hinted at the fact that he’s not going to shy away from squad rotations.
He told the press, as per Football London: “Difficult[choice] because we have competition in the squad. I have changed it at times, we consider the games as we go.
“I know how much players want to be in these games. People off the bench have made a huge difference in recent games.
“It doesn’t affect preparations, we still want to win it. If you win it stays with it for life. Of course, you want fans to be there, they have been great for us.
“N’Golo Kante and Willian are in the squad. Loftus-Cheek has a small problem and is out of the game.”
Frank Lampard rested Kepa Arrizabalaga against Wolves last weekend in the Premier League and there’s a big chance the manager might opt to use Caballero vs Arsenal as well.
There have been times over the course of this season when the Spanish keeper has been benched for a couple of games but every time he has been reinstated into the starting XI pretty quickly.
But if the Chelsea boss does decide to use Caballero in place of Arrizabalaga at Wembley then we can be more than certain that Kepa is about to be sold during the current transfer window.
